A fine WordPress.com site

gotcha!

Who knew. Not me, I’m a novice on what happens in the woods during a snow storm. I found out today, the heavy snow had blanketed most of the feeders. The cold, wet, thaw, freeze of the last 48 hours, also brought down weak limbs. To this end I found several of the feeders on the ground, one very damaged, and the other not so bad, but in need of attention.

I sent myself to clearing off the snow, and putting out fresh seed so that the now hovering birds could eat, while I righted the refilled the feeders that had suffered during the storm.

this heavy feeder was the one that had been on the limb that came down during the storm. I was fortunate that I was able to get a snowshoe enthusiast who came by with his young son to help me get it back up on a sturdier limb. The man had to put his son on his shoulders, so that we could hang the first S hook. Fortunately I had gone to the store a few days ago and stocked up on the larger S hooks. I had no idea at the time why I had a need to acquire them.. The Universe knew… they sure came in handy today.
I use a variety of containers, so that i can offer an assortment of food. The stump on the left had to be cleared of snow so that the black sunflower seeds and peanuts could be scattered there for the birds to drop down and gather up.

At the Mer Bleue site, I was thrilled to see a bird that till that moment I had not seen, a Hoary red poll. When I get a picture I will share it with you.

Now that the birds have been fed. It is my turn, home made beef bone soup with fresh veggies and dried Chinese mushrooms. Yum
